Default Planning my Dream Ranger input from 3rd gen owners wanted

ok guys the plan for me is to rock the colt and possibly the chebbie if i get it until the Ranger falls into play.

so far what i have figured out is this:
Auto Tranny
4X4
Ex cab

figureing on a 95 and up as that has the better tranny vs teh A4LD

being auto and 4x4 means it would have the 3.0 or the 4.0 and both are overall good engines

id like a manual T case but id take a auto.

thoughts????

i don't see a manual transfer case with an automatic in a newer vehicle happening unless you do it yourself.
